-year-old turned to us and asked what that means. we discovered for to quickly that that is not an easy concept to explain to a five-year-old. we said, it is something that you believe in, that you spend time on. that and lookut at us and said, kind of like we stand for barack obama? we said, absolutely. [applause] of course, after my wife got done patting ourselves on the back for teaching our five-year- old who the right choice in the presidential race was, i thought about that. what i stand for, what our neighborhood stands for, our communities stand for, and what our state stands for. it is things like an economy built from the middle out. healthcare for everybody. the idea that our communities are stronger because of the bonds we share and the answers to the challenges we face lie in the future and not the past. a lot of times campaigns become about little things, doors to knock, phone calls to make, as on tv, twitter feeds, facebook posts, but everyone should allow campaigns to become about bigger questions. this is one of those campaigns. the question to me is, are we going to continue t
